ALX Appoints Renowned Learning & Development Expert to the Board
ALX Training, the Channel Islands’ leading provider of workplace skills training has appointed internationally renowned eLearning expert, consultant and entrepreneur, Marco Faccini, to its board as a non-Executive Director.
"As a world leader in the field of learning and development, Marco brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to ALX. We are proud that Marco has chosen to use his time to help develop ALX and in turn, make learning even more effective for the thousands of Channel Island students that we teach every year," said Alex Morel, Managing Director of ALX Training.
Marco is an experienced learning professional who started out as an e-learning pioneer in 2001 with Creative Learning Media which went onto become MindLeaders before being purchased by Skillsoft in 2012.
After Skillsoft’s purchase, Marco formed Performance Learning Group, an employee-ownership Professional Learning Services company that helps employers and suppliers deliver business performance on their Learning & Development strategies.
It is this wider understanding of the Learning and Development profession and its interface with technology that Marco hopes will benefit ALX.
"ALX Training is a fantastic company with great family-based values which has seen year-on-year growth since its inception five years ago," said Marco Faccini.
"As the founder, Alex Morel wants to push the company onto the next level, broadening both its service offering and reach whilst maintaining the core values of the business. My previous experience of helping companies grow from start-up, combined with my sales, marketing and learning technologies background will help broaden the horizons and experience of the existing Board whilst also facilitating the cross-fertilisation of ideas, particularly in terms of business strategy and planning."
As well as his work with ALX and Performance Learning Group, Marco is also a Producer at Learning Now TV and a Fellow of The Learning Performance Institute. He also sits on various advisory boards such as the CLO Business Intelligence Board and the Human Capital Executive Research Board.
